    I don't see any pointy hackles or saddle feathers, the coloring is even, and the comb and wattles are not large. She's a pullet, and will probably be laying soon!

    17 weeks. Yeah think she is about to lay. She has gotten totally red and more aggressive!

    Yep, pullet on point of lay. You should see eggs within two weeks or so.
